Diana Artemis faces General Terrible and his Horrible Host.

For this week’s Illustration Friday, Immovable, I decided to put together a scene from my sketchbook on the Goddess of the Hunt facing some unsavory types. Yep, an unstoppable force meeting an immovable opponent. Or, vice versa.

Here’s how it started:

I didn’t sweat General Terrible or the bad guys too much, because I wanted them to be out of focus.

Diana wins, of course. They don’t really stand a chance – she has the moon on her side.
